So I have a confession. I LOVE Shipboard Planking!!!
[ horizontally planked walls for those of you who don't know what that is ]
don't worry. I didn't know what it was called either until a few weeks ago when I couldn't get any good inspirational pictures from typing "horizontal planks" in the google machine. After MUCH searching and word manipulating I finally figured it out, and from then on it was happy sailing... pun intended :)]
So.... now the question arises; "How do I put THAT on MY rental walls?!?" I
want no, NEED to have it!
The answer? That ugly panneling from the 70's.... turned SIDEWAYS!!
Here it is hung up on my wall.
We used just a few nails [into studs] to keep it sturdy and flush but also not too many for easy removal when we part ways with our apt in a few years. We'll just have to fill in a few holes like any other picture hung on a wall... no biggie :)
I Nailed up a 1x4 board ontop to hide the seem, and added a "shelf" ontop of that.
I primed and painted it white and am now in the process of putting the finishing touches into my new dining room!
The final reveal will be Wednesday [or Thursday should my accessories not cooperate in which case I'm giving myself an extra day to perfect it].... Stay tuned!!
